Notes
  • Significance: These cenotaphs were designed by noted architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe in 1815 as memorials to congressmen who died in office. Although several hundred o the monuments were reacted,less than eighty bodies of congressmen and prominent citizens were interred under them. Their use was discontinued in 1877 after a senator remarked that being buried beneath one would add a new terror to death.
